Notes from the Importer: Farmed by a neighboring family for generations, the Fernao Pires vines for this wine are thought to be between 120-150 years old and are still tended by someone aged 89, who is the last generation to show interest in the farming life. Enter, the Andre Gomes, winemaker for Quinta do Montaldo, who recognized the treasure of the site and decided to make a wine from these amazing vines--calling it "Uncondemned."
